We supported a front runner; heard from a survivor and
learned from a scholar on three diseases that continue to plague
our country. Le'Dor Phoenix, the 2015 Atlanta Woman of the Year
Candidate for the The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society stayed with us
for the hour. Le'Dor has amazingly changed the game inside and
outside her chosen industries while continuing to pursue studies,
raise a family and campaign for Lukemia. She is amazing and you
will enjoy every word she shares. Sickle Cell Day was on its way
but not without the support and rally of Dr. Milford Green. Dr.
Green works for the foundation and provides valuable insight we all
need to know about ourselves and families. About midways through we
met a living inspiration called Mary Ellen
Ciganovich. Mary Ellen learned to cope with; did not take
traditonal medication for but instea prevaled over two majoy
illnesses, an abusive childhood, and the difficultires of single
parentlhood to become a whole and dynamic person.
